Enjoyed chatting w/owner & found some samples worth purchasing. Informal yet "homey", array was substantial for area, not really considered "wine country".

The wines we tasted were good. The conversation was great. And the folks we were following on the tour of wineries made it even more special as they provided commentary as we arrived at each stop. A fun way to spend the afternoon.
